Bookstack Shelving

Cantilever shelving is “the” storage solution for library applications. It is extremely popular for public and private libraries, government facilities, corporate offices and educational institutions. Spacesaver is one of the most respected manufacturers of Cantilever Shelving, also referred to as book stack shelving. Cantiliver Library shelving is used more than any other type of shelving in a library environment because it can be easily manipulated to neatly store all printed media from books to magazines.

Long Lasting and Dependable

Spacesaver Cantilever Shelving is forged from heavy gauge steel. This type of shelving provides the strength to support heavy weight loads including books and magazines of varying sizes. The engineered wide frame design provides stability. Spacesaver cantilever shelving meets or exceeds the structural integrity standards of the American Library Association.

Easily Modified

Cantilever shelving is fully configurable to suit the needs of any type of institution or administration. The shelving units can be disassembled and reconstructed with ease, making relocation or add ons a viable solution to changing environments. Modern Office Systems has a wide array of accessories available for cantilever shelving to enhance this storage solution.
